Refashion Cut Out Dress
I have been so in love with this Carven Dress for a long long time.
Love that little cut out on the tummy, although I have to say that I do not approve of the multi-coloured fabric. I know i'm a boring person. Thanks.
When I went to the thrift shop the other time, I saw that long black dress and inspiration struck. I thought of using it for my little DIY project. The thrifted dress cost me only $3. Booyah!
I didn't managed to take photos of the whole process, but I believe you people are able to re-create your own version using my fumbly typed-out instructions. So...
First, I cut the dress into 2 parts at the waist.
The bottom (long) part is once again, cut into 2 portions.
I took the one right at the bottom (with the widest opening) to be used as part of my new dress.
I cut a little triangle at the top part of my dress and sew it down.
Pleating was done to the bottom and sewn onto the top.
No hemming was done in the process~ (Thank God!)
My dress is actually quite ugly on the inside, but whatever~ Heheheh
Good luck in your project! Do send me links to your photos if you did try making your own cut-out dress :)
